Biomechanics of the Gastrointestinal Tract is an up-to-date book for
researchers on the study of the mechanical properties and the motor system
of the gastrointestinal tract.
A well-illustrated book, it provides a comprehensive overview to relevant
tissue geometry, morphology and biomechanical theory. Separate chapters
cover smooth muscle and nerve function including the application to animal
and human studies of motility, symptoms and pain, determination of the
true resting state, history-dependent properties, and tissue remodelling
in disease. Several methods and diagnostic applications such as
determination of in vivo length-tension diagrams and multimodal pain
testing are completely new but will undoubtedly be used by many in the
future. New non-invasive imaging techniques based on ultrasound, MR- and
CT-scanning in combination with balloon distension are emerging as the
techniques for future in vivo studies.
